Check out...

This post on writing a haiku for a Book Giveaway competition. You have until the end of august to write a haiku using the word 'prose' within. Great fun

Here's mine:

only prose knows how
the borders of a book bind
the house of fiction

Very timely spotting this one, since my End of Course Assessment on the 20thc Literature course is hoving into view on literary judgments, and I'm also embroiled in the nicieties of context and meaning in 19thc literature... gawd help me...

I soothe myself with the notion that it will all be over in about seven weeks. Eek! That means I'd better get my skates on.

Pass it on!

So good when the goal posts are in sight. Just 'mind the gap' when it's all over!!

Natty little Haiku!

Love the haiku. Well done for getting this far, hope you keep going. I'm glad you share the parent guilt thing. Now I feel guilty about feeling guilty, :)

I've done my book list. It was a links and bells and whistles, but it got eaten somewhere in blogger ether, so now it'll be short and sweet.
